My memories of Italy and especially Florence are centered around the apartment I rented from you. The view of the tile roofs was spectacular..The elevator, the kitchen, the bath, everything made for a life changing holiday.Thank you TOM"

Other Things to Note
This is the message I received from a person who was in the apartment, one year after his stay: "Irene, Anniversary, one year ago I was lucky to stay in your apartment. Especially My memories of Italy and Florence are centered around the apartment I rented from you. The view of the tile roofs was spectacular..The elevator, the kitchen, the bath, everything made for a life changing holiday.Thank you TOM "
Flexible check in and check out
A great apartment right in the middle of all the attractions... It was a little difficult to locate at first, but we eventually found it. Overall a great experience and would enjoy it again.
Clara was a great host and the location of the apartment is unbelievably good. We stayed 5 days and was overall happy. My wife and I didn't need any assistance from Clara after we checked in. She left a pamphlet with restaurants that was very helpful.
The apartment was overall spacious and had what we needed. We did a little cooking and laundry which was good as well. We also appreciated that there was an elevator to the apartment (which we hadn't had in other stays in Europe).
The downside with our stay is that we noticed the apartment (particularly the couch) was a bit dusty. My allergies were acting up. It can also get a little stuffy in the apartment so opening the windows at night was necessary. But that did seem to invite a few mosquitoes and I had some bites unfortunately. A window screen would help with that.
With all that said, we were happy overall with apartment and our stay. Would recommend if you're looking for an unbeatable location in Florence!
Our experience in Firenze was absolutely perfect.. the city itself is breathtaking and filled with culture and history. I would highly recommend Irene & Clara's apartment to anyone looking to stay in Florence for any period of time.
The location of the apartment is very, very convenient, located just around the corner from many major attractions such as the Uffizi Gallery and Piazza Della Republica. It is a short distance from the Duomo and Il Ponte Vecchio, sights which you must see before you leave. There are many stores to shop in all near the apartment and plenty of places to eat.. especially if you're in the mood for gelato! The apartment itself was fantastic.. outside the bedroom and living room was the city's skyline (being on the 8th floor has its perks.. and don't worry there is a lift!) and you have a beautiful view of the Piazza. The rooms are spacious and well lit, and pretty quiet (again 8th floor has it's perks). Clara had met us at the apartment upon arrival and was very friendly and helpful, leaving us a list of recommendations for places to go for food, gelato and even the movies! Both Irene and Clara were only a text or phone call away if we needed anything, and let us check out a few minutes later than planned because we needed a little extra time getting ready for our train.
I would book this apartment again in a heartbeat for my next trip to Florence. Irene and Clara thank you so much for renting us you're apartment and making it possible for James and I to explore your beautiful city!
The apartment is very nice and cosy. There are clean and bright living room, one big bedroom with big window and one small bedroom. All furniture in excellent condition.
We chose this apartment because it’s located in the city center and pretty close to the railway station S. M. Novella. If you are going to do so, be prepared to hear a bell ring every hour. :-)
Clara left us a mini-guide about nice places to eat. We visited two restaurant from her list and were completely satisfied.
Fantastic apartment! It's in a great location - shops, restaurants and attractions are all nearby.
It was easy to find and Clara met us on arrival. She gave us a good tour of the apartment and also a lot of recommendations on where to eat and things to do.
I enjoyed everything about my time in Florence and the apartment was no exception!
The apartment was very clean and is true to the description provided. We were met by the cleaning lady who was very pleasant and gave clear instructions. The location of the apartment is really wonderful. The apartment is on the 8th floor which is reached by a small quaint lift. The apartment has a clear view of the Palazzo Vecchio. Everything is at your doorstep. Although we did not meet Irene or Clara, they were contactable via telephone message or email. A couple of issues (outside their control) regarding electricity and water were resolved. I felt very comfortable and enjoyed a hot shower and a comfortable bed. After two weeks of previous travel is was so nice to cook a meal and do my washing. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wanted a comfortable and neat little place to stay.
We had the best time in Florence at Irene and Clara's flat. Perfectly situated downtown, the flat is very close to all major attractions and has a stunning view of the Palazzo Vecchio from two windows. Check in was a breeze. Flat has everything you could want and they even had a baby cot for our one year old. They had a list of local recommendations that ended up being gems for us. We highly recommend this flat for your stay in Florence!
